A few words concerning worship

Communion: We love sharing communion with you but Good Shepherd Folks, it’s cold outside! This means that we will not be holding services in our parking lot!! If you would like to have several months of communion elements delivered to you, please contact Robert Gurtcheff at (215) 378-0026, Jeannette Cartwright at (215) 539-7716, or Pastor Candace at (215) 638-4090. That way, we can get elements to you by the first Sunday in January.

If you want to join us in the sanctuary, we need to know that you are coming. The Bishop has told us to keep our numbers at 15 or less. Therefore, we ask that you contact Robert Gurtcheff at (215) 378-0026, Jeannette Cartwright at (215) 539-7716, or Pastor Candace at (215) 638-4090. If you let us know ahead of time, we can make sure that you have a spot on a dot!

If you have JOYS or CONCERNS, please use the prayer request form found here.  If you have an announcement, please contact Jeannette at (215) 539-7716.

We look forward to seeing you online each and every Sunday at 10:30AM. You are a blessing to Good Shepherd!!

In Christ’s Love,
Jeannette Cartwright, Christ Servant Minister
Chairman, Worship Committee

Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network

Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network (PIHN) seeks to end family homelessness in Philadelphia by mobilizing congregational volunteers and community resources to meet neighbors emergency needs (shelter, food, and clothing); and by providing continued guidance and support to achieve self-sufficiency in affordable housing.

PIHN promotes lasting solutions to homelessness by building relationships between caring volunteers and families who are homeless; and by advocating for public policies that support employment, access to education, and affordable housing opportunities.

PIHN has received funding to prevent homelessness before it begins through the Eviction Prevention & Relocation Assistance Program. This program provides funding to assist families to stay in their current housing and prevent eviction as well as funds to assist families who are already displaced with rental deposits.

Visit the PIHN website to learn more.
